* ''Series/JessicaJones''
** Putting aside the mind control element, Hope Schlottman's situation in the first episode is terrifying. Imagine your daughter has abruptly cut off contact with you while in another state, and all evidence points to her having been taken in by someone with ulterior motives. Imagine finding out said man [[spoiler:raped your daughter, and all to get back at someone you don't even ''know''.]] This would be bad enough on its own, but when you include the mind control, [[spoiler:said man has manipulated your daughter into murdering you against your will, again, all to get back at someone you've never met. Now Hope is in prison for their murders, and her brother is completely alone as far as the audience knows.]]
** Speaking of Kilgrave, he later mind-controls a man into abandoning his own son on the side of the road. While the kid is okay in the end, the man in question is arrested for child endangerment and ends up losing his wife and son. From the husband's perspective, he's been forced into hurting his child against his will and lost everything because some selfish prick wanted to use him as a chauffeur; from the wife's perspective, her husband abandoned their child and disappeared for at least a week without saying a word to anyone.

** At the end of the second episode, a father is beaten while his child is kidnapped right in front of him by human traffickers who are more than willing to sell the kid once they're done using him as bait for Daredevil.
** A season two example: Frank's description of his daughter's death, compounded by the whole thing being brushed under the rug by the DA to save her own career, is ''prime'' Adult Fear.

*** And as bad as it was for Joe, imagine what it must be like for Henry--in prison for a crime he didn't commit, then this happens, and he can't see or help his son. Really, anything bad that happens to Barry while Henry is in prison is Adult Fear in one way or another.

** It turns out that Old Nan's great-grandson Hodor was once a boy of normal intelligence named Wylis. One day, while simply standing around in the castle courtyard, he suddenly dropped to the ground convulsing from some kind of seizure, as Nan and the rest of the household looked on in helpless horror. Ever since her great-grandson was reduced to the mind of a child and couldn't say anything other than "hodor".

** The flashback of the regime taking over is disturbing. One day, seemingly out of nowhere, all the women find that their rights have been cut off; losing access to their money, being fired from their jobs, being monitored by heavily armed men.
